Where do my kids go?

“Then Jesus took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.’” (Mark 9:36-37)

Children are welcome in worship at Holy Trinity, and families are encouraged to worship together.  We have activity bags available with crayons, coloring books, and other materials for children.  However, for those who need it, child care is available in the nursery during worship services for infants through age 6.

 

What is worship like?

Worship is the center of our life together.  In our gathering, we listen for God’s prophetic and gracious word.  We strive to make use of a wide range of artistic and musical gifts in all of our worship services at Holy Trinity.  As our tag line (Traditional Worship – Contemporary Message – A Call to Social Justice) implies, worship at Holy Trinity is what many would describe as “traditional,” drawing deeply on the rich liturgical resources of the Lutheran and other Christian traditions.  At the same time, we strive to proclaim a contemporary message, one that is relevant to the life of Christians living in the 21st century.

We hope you will join us to experience worship at Holy Trinity for yourself.  We are committed to the inclusion of all people, with no exception, in our worship life together at Holy Trinity.  Therefore we practice open communion, welcoming all to the table to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion.

 

What does the church believe?

Holy Trinity is a diverse community of open-minded believers striving together to learn what it means to follow the way of Christ.  The people of Holy Trinity have wide-ranging beliefs on various matters of faith and life.  We are knit together by a shared passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and by a belief that God’s love is a gift given freely to all people regardless of class, race, age, gender, sexuality, or any other social distinction.  Therefore, we are committed to welcoming all people, with no exception, to the full life of this community of faith.
